Why Sales Managers Must Love Their Team

Love Your Team

Jan 16 2022 • 8 mins

Welcome to our first episode. This podcast is for sales managers who must retain their top talent in a world where employees have far more choice and power than ever before. Helen Fanucci believes that sales managers are the critical leverage point for any company looking to grow and remain competitive in the innovation economy. For most of us, remote work and hybrid work have caused us to rethink what it takes to be effective. Employee expectations have changed which in turn requires sales managers to adjust their approach in order to retain top talent and build high-performing teams that consistently exceed revenue goals.

Welcome to Love Your Team hosted by Helen Fanucci with Susan Finch.
